Through its Shakespeare for the Schools Program, the company offers condensed 75-minute matinee productions performed by professional actors either in-school or at the company’s Midtown theater.  These performances include post-performance talk back sessions with cast members.  In-school performances require a large, open space, preferably an auditorium or cafeteria.  Study guides are distributed to students at each performance.  Also offered is a series of inschool workshops for grades 6 to 12 taught by the company’s teaching artists. The company also offers customized workshops to suit any special needs or requests.
